I have TomTom device installed in the dashboard of my Renault Captur 2019 model.

The unit has Android Auto but does not have Apple CarPlay. I have been trying to find a way to have CarPlay but no success. I tried to installed APK file on the unit but the device didn't read / find the file when I plugged in the USB.

How do I add CarPlay or install APK file? Pics of the unit attached. hkgpbvrosdvp.jpg

    Hi @Taymour

    Welcome to the community!
    Some build-in devices by design(hardware) don't support using both- Android and Apple Carplay so I would advise that you check with the car dealer if it's possible to have both these platforms running together.

    Hi Vikram - thanks for the reply.

    I did contact the dealer before and they don't know how to do this. They said it is imported as is and they are not sure how to install the CarPlay as the unit is not Android and it is a TomTom unit.

    Any idea if I can find a way to either install APK file or CarPlay?
